    Default Yet another Mark GSi repair job!

    My car has been hopping skipping and jumping all over the place, not to mention crashing and banging.

    Anyway, I've found the reason why! I must have reversed over Mark at PVS and only noticed today when I jacked the car up, there he was trapped underneath!!




    Mark heard me mention that I thought I had at least one knackered shocker. He was straight onto me with an offer of two that he had lying around, complete with fitting. As you can see, it wasn't before time!!



    Definately been leaking for some time!

    I couldn't get over how he changed them in under 10 minutes per side, without removing a wheel!! One bolt in the wheelarch, about hereish



    And another under the back somewhere.



    While he was under there he told me the back box is starting to rust!!

    Anyway, big thanks to Mark (again) Two shockers all fitted in under 20 minutes! Made a huge difference on the way home - I actually have ride comfort now, plus it didn't try to spin on the roundabout over the road from me, so has to be an improvement!!

    Oh, and to prove I have spent 6 hours this weekend claying, polishing, glazing and sealing, a gratuitous reflection shot!!



    Next workshop meet, I'm there. Even if it's sweeping up and making the tea, at least I can do something!! I'll even bring biscuits.

    it was a pleasure as always.....the nicer way to interupt the working day....

    1st job this morning was a 1800 ecotec veccy B that wanted crank,and cam sensors and a coilpack..that was before i started work at 6 am....finished tonight at 7.15....sorry i couldn't spend more time with you and shazzle, but i still had 2 hours more to do due to that painter....

    if you're bringing the biscuits, then i'm sure plasma will be turning up...make them jammie dodgers and GG will even put in an appearance....
